Alec Swanson was born and raised in a small town in Minnesota, so small that it's not even on most maps.
He came from a very large family with 9 aunts and uncles Who were all pilots, along with his mother and father.
His grandfather ran an airport in back of their farm until the town built an airport, which they then had him run.
Being born into a family of pilots and growing up at the airport, Alec had dreamed of nothing else but becoming a pilot.
Alec worked his way from being a passenger, since he was two years old, to having his Private Pilot License at the age of seventeen.
Knowing that aviation was his passion, he moved to Daytona Beach, Florida to attend Embry Riddle Aeronautical University.
Graduating in 2016, Alec had a Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics with a minor in Business Administration.
In the fall of 2016 Alec moved to Tampa, Florida and earned his CFI at Tailwheels etc. and has worked for the company since October 2016. While currently unsure whether he wants to fly corporate or airlines, his end goal is to fly for Fed Ex or UPS.
Along with aviation, Alec has always had a love for beach volleyball, traveling as a US Open Beach Volleyball Player to tournaments in southeastern United States.
Being born and raised in the country, Alec has always had an interest in hunting, fishing, and anything outdoors.
